      GlobeMed at University of Cincinnati's 7th Annual Benefit Dinner

      GlobeMed is a non-profit, international student-run organization that emphasizes the sustainability of partnership as well as health equity. As a network, it is GlobeMed's mission to address issues of inequality and inequity around the world. In order to do this, each university chapter is partnered with an established grass-roots organization abroad, working with the partner to identify its needs and how the chapter can support them. The University of Cincinnati chapter is partnered with Social Action for Women (SAW), located in Mae Sot, Thailand. As a chapter, we aim to raise $10,000 each year to support SAW's efforts to address issues of education, access to basic and preventive health care, the rights of women and children, and minority rights for those who have crossed the border from Burma to escape severe political unrest. In Cincinnati, we also work to raise awareness of issues in our own community. We host a series of campaigns, advocacy events, and hundreds of community service hours throughout the year, and one of our events has included an annual Benefit Dinner, at which we bring together members of the community to discuss GlobeMed's work and raise funds. The evening includes a silent auction, dinner, and a keynote address. Last year, we were fortunate to gross over $9,000 at our Benefit Dinner, 100% of the profits went directly to SAW. Totally Globemed at UC was able to send $12,000 to SAW. We hope to not only raise $10,000 again this year, but continue to foster partnership, collaboration, and initiatives to create health equity both in Cincinnati as well as in Thailand. GlobeMed at UC's Benefit Dinner in 2020, held at the Phoenix in downtown Cincinnati, will feature the chance to hear from community leaders and GlobeMed at UC alumni who represent the values that GlobeMed upholds. We are delighted to announce that our keynote speaker is Jeremiah Griswold who is the owner and lead artist at White Whale Tattoo in Cincinnati working to provide free coverup work for former gang members, sex workers, and others hoping to change their personal narratives locally and internationally. Caroline Hensley, MPH, a GlobeMed at UC alum and current University of Cincinnati MD candidate, will also speak to her experiences in GlobeMed and beyond. Guests are also welcome to bid on items from a large silent auction while enjoying an open bar and live music by Rob Enyard trio. Partnerships and collaboration will be created throughout the night among professionals and students alike.
